Gout pain is caused by buildup of uric acid around joints. Can be really very painful when it happens. It is said that eating fresh fruits and vegetables is good for preventing gout. Please share your experience. Any other suggestion for preventing gout ?

hello...the main reason why you have the gout because your uric acid level is high.As a nurse, I can share to you how to prevent more production of uric acid which results to gout. First, there is diet modification.You have to limit poultry, legumes,liver and organ meats. Beans are high in purine which also increases uric acid level.Avoid canned foods too. Increase fluid intake 6-8 glasses per day. Second, Taking of medications as ordered by your doctor. These medications could be sodium salicylate and corticosteriods. The acute phase is managed with colchicine or endomethacin. In the chronic stage, probenecid which inhibits excretion of uric acid. Then allopurinol to inhibit production of uric acid. I hope these can help you. :-)

i used to suffer pain from gout and the doctor gave me some medications and told me to stop eating beans and peas for the meantime. do you have gout? i think you need to see the doctor so he can tell you what to do and what not to eat. mine is okay years ago and i always make general check ups every year. need to make sure i am well in order to work for my family. prevention is better than cure. take care.

Beans and peas ! I should also stop eating beans and peas then. I was a a bit sensitive to noodles. I don't know for sure if noodles cause gout. But, a couple of times, after I eat noodles at a restuarant, I get aches in the joints. So I have been staying away from eating noodles these days.

yes noodles and pasta can produce acid formation inside your tummy that can cause gout. i guess you really need to get a doctors advice on regarding what to eat and what not to eat. do you eat oats? that is good for you and yogurt as well. i know water melon is not good for a person with gout for water melon has uric acid. stay safe be healthy.

For high uric acid, one can try this----- Just mix green papaya cubes to the ordinary green tea, sip after 15 minutes. After a week of drinking this formula there is significant improvement. Ripe papaya and green papaya have wonderful medicinal properties.

I'm not sure if I really suffer from gout but I do call this a sort of gout pain. I try and keep a natural diet, fresh fruit, veg and try not to eat what I call call rubbish food. If I do suddenly eat what I call rubbish food it plays my system up something real bad and boy do I suffer with bad pain, cramps in my leg and just feel really ughy. Its because my body is so unuse to all this food and it can't cope with the intake of rubbish food, takes me a good day or so to get my body round again to how I like it.... but I never learn. I do really feel for people who do get proper gout as I know it can be really painful.
